  • The Lazarus Project - Campaign - Sky
    The Lazarus Project - Campaign - SkyThe Lazarus Project is a propulsive time-travelling thriller from writer Joe Barton, with rising talent Paapa Essiedu leading an ensemble cast of complex and morally compromised misfits. Series one struggled to find its audience, having been broadly pitched at drama-romance fans and sci-fi lovers alike. For series two, we were told to go all in on mind-bending action.

  • Liverpool Narcos - Key Art
    Liverpool Narcos - Key ArtCreative concept and art direction for the Sky Documentaries miniseries Liverpool Narcos. We wanted to show the corrupting influence of the drugs trade on one of the UK's most iconic cities. So we took the symbol of Liverpool, the Liver bird, and sculpted out of cocaine with help from the 3D studio Territory. Rising from a pile of powder, beautifully fragile and crumbling but nonetheless defiant, Liverpool's identity stands strong in spite of its challenges.

    Film Studies with ScreenwritingSheffield Hallam University
     - Sheffield, United Kingdom
    My degree combined practical screenwriting with the academic study of film and offered a range of transferable skills important to other roles within the wider film industry and other sectors. At its core was the study of screenwriting as a craft and development of the creative skills and knowledge of film needed to write screenplays that get commissioned.
